On laminated structures under flexure

If you design laminated structures, such as sandwich panels, you might be interested in knowing that the through-the-thickness normal stress, properly disregarded in homogeneous structures, may play a fundamental role in triggering delamination.

Abstract submission open for mini-symposium "Micromechanics-based Nonlocal Continuum Models" at ESMC 2018, Bologna, Italy

Micromechanics-based Nonlocal Continuum Models organised by Lorenzo Bardella (University of Brescia) and Samuel Forest (Mines ParisTech CNRS)  Submission deadline: November 15th, 2017  Nowadays, problems involving more physics and more length and time scales have become very relevant in engineering applications. Theoretical frameworks limited to conventional continua are often inadequate to model such problems.

Ph.D. position opened at the University of Brescia, Italy

The group of Mechanics of Solids and Structures at the School of Engineering at the University of Brescia (Italy) has an open PhD position. The appointment will begin on January 1st 2014 for three full years.

The following topics are of interest:

1. small-scale plasticity of metals, with emphasis on modelling the size effect through strain gradient plasticity theories and dislocation mechanics. 2. micromechanics of composite materials, with emphasis on modelling failure.
